Area[edit]

I was just doing some poking around the new American FactFinder, and realize that the areas given here for each of the divisions (urbanized area, MSA, and CSA) actually include both land and water. Is this consistent with how area is given for other metropolitan pages here on wiki, or should be just include the land area? I ask, because Wayne and Macomb counties, in particular, include a lot of water, specifically, Lake St. Clair. --Criticalthinker (talk) 03:38, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

CFD for category related to this article[edit]

FYI: There is an ongoing discussion at WP:CFD regarding the names of categories for certain US metropolitan areas, including this one. See Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2013 March 4#Metropolitan areas in the United States. --Orlady (talk) 17:14, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Ann Arbor?[edit]

Having lived in both Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor, I do not see Ann Arbor as part of Metro Detroit, nor do most Ann Arborites. AnnArbor.com even wrote an article on this: http://www.annarbor.com/news/conan-smith-on-why-ann-arbor-doesnt-yet-see-itself-as-part-of-metro-detroit-and-why-it-should/. I feel that all references to Ann Arbor as part of Metro Detroit should be removed from this article, and it should rather be treated as a satellite city of Detroit, like Flint. Any thoughts?
